Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline that originated in ancient India and has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. It includes instruction in a variety of physical poses that are combined with specific breathing techniques. Yoga has gained popularity recently with close to 11 million Americans currently enjoying it for its many health and fitness benefits. The physical benefits of yoga include increased flexibility, strength, and muscle tone. Other physical benefits include improved respiration, energy, and vitality. It can also provide pain relief, assist in maintaining a balanced metabolism, and promote cardiovascular and circulatory health. The mental benefits include increased relaxation, decreased stress, increased ability to focus, and learning to focus more on positive thinking. The spiritual benefits include improved awareness of your body, feelings, and the world around you. Yoga is appropriate for nearly everybody because it is not dependent upon age or fitness level and there are modifications possible for every yoga pose.
Pilates is a style of fitness that incorporates a lot of exercises and stretches you already do with breathing for a core workout. Each week, we'll learn new exercises and repeat our favorites as we feel our bodies get stronger and more limber. Pilates is all about creating long, lean muscles through developing the core and improving balance. We will learn modifications for all skill levels and feel progression throughout the semester.
Pilates mats will be provided, please wear comfortable clothes!
